Blessings

As we come Spring I open my itchy scratchy eyes and look at all the abundant blessings that surround me. I'll live with the allergies to see all the beautiful flowers in full bloom, the dogwoods with beautiful pink flowers that line the trail while I run, the frogs croaking in the rain induced pong in our non-existent park across the way. I am waiting patiently to finish up our Winter weather and keep this great weather. Most of all this week I am reminded of the best blessings of all. I am hosting my sisters baby shower for baby Jeremy this weekend along with the half marathon I've been waiting so anxiously for. With the blessing of having my sister, nieces and nephews here comes the sadness that my BIL is in Iraq in the Army. The good thing is that he got an R&R pass to come home for the babies birth. So from now til the end of the month will be full of blessings galore.

Some blessings and some blessings in waiting. SSG Bri will not be back to the states until summer. That gives for some serious mixed blessings. I get to keep my sister and her kids closer for a little longer but then they still don't get that precious time with their daddy and and hubby.
Our kids have some new and exciting things coming but some scary things too.

Tomorrow is leap year! I know some people find new and exciting things to do with their lives. I suggest you find a new way to be "green". That's what we're doing but that's another post.

I saw your "getting to know you" post on my blog...thanks for stopping by..sorry it took me so long to stop by yours. Loved your answers! I'd love to hear more about your Uncle, too. What was it that made his voice/words so special?

Sound like you have a very full month ahead. Lots of joy coming your way.

Nice to meet you, and come back again sometime!
